Sum Kee Food Campaign

On Tuesday, 20th October 2015, a group of 9 influencers headed down to Sum Kee Food for a Food Tasting! The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Sum were extremely hospitable, and their eldest daughter, Nicolette (@nicolettelovesyou), sat together with the influencers to eat!

Both Nicolette and her mom were patient to answer any queries that the influencers had, be it the country of origin of the crabs, or the breed of fish used for the Curry Fish Head (we found out it was Red Snapper).

We started off with the signature dish, one that Sum Kee is well known for – Ultraman Chicken.

 

So apparently, there is a god, because I had really phenomenal Ultraman Chicken (咸蛋鸡?), essentially salted egg yolk chicken. ?❤️?? check out the gorgeous egg yolk dripping all over!! ? Together with the crunchy curry leaves, this dish left all the foodies wanting more. Extremely moreish, fragrant (I want a Scratch-&-Sniff function for IG!!!) & creamy!!! Unctuous, almost!!!! Seriously, I DIE. ??? I’m bringing my parents here to try Sum Kee’s most popular dish. I can see why. ? #sumkee #sumkeefood #starngagexsumkee @starngage @sumkeefood Thank you for inviting me to this food tasting event. ?? #yum #yummy #yumscrums #photooftheday #vscofood #vscogood #vscocam #vsco #foodiesg #foodporn #Singapore #hkig #sgfood #sgeats #nomnom #instasg #burpple #ULTRAMAN ️Postscript: the lovely proprietress named this dish after the famed manga character, Ultraman, because…well, his name in Chinese is literally translated into Salted Egg Superman (咸蛋超人) because his eyes look like salted eggs, and this is a salted egg dish…. #WordPlayAtItsBest ?

It was followed by Ngor Hiong (with crunchy bits of water chestnut in it), Four Seasons Beans (Si Ji Dou), and Wallet Chicken.

The wallet chicken is a concept created by Mrs. Sum, who stuffed the chicken with glutinous rice!

 

  Next up was the Pumpkin Tofu, which is seasonal, as pumpkins are quite hard to obtain in Singapore. The smooth pumpkin sauce was something unique, because you don’t really get pumpkin infused dishes in Singapore.

 

Following this, was a huge claypot of Curry Fish Head! We love this description by Sam (@samoosg), who absolutely loved the Curry Fish Head!

 

Still dreaming of this Fishhead Curry Claypot at Sum Kee. ❤️? Do you see the red snapper’s lips top left? ? Hahaha! OkOk. This fishhead curry isn’t a typical Indian-style curry — it isn’t as thick and is more coconutty. ???? That made the curry gravy so easy to drink up!!! Despite that long intimidating chili, real chili aficionados will know it’s not spicy. ?? I love the okra, brinjal, taupok (tofu skins) and miscellaneous accompaniments. ?❤️? What a colorful dish appealing to both the eyes and the belly!!! I almost wanted to order this as takeaway as it took away my heart! (Groan ??) #yum #yummy #yumscrums Thank you to @starngage for organizing this tasting and @sumkeefood @nicolettelovesyou for being such amazing hosts!!!? 爱死你们了? #SumKee #sumkeefood #starngagexsumkee #vscofood #vscocam #vsco #singapore #nomnom #hkig #sgeats #curry #sgfood #instasg #burpple #foodiesg #foodpics #foodporn #love

We ended the dinner with Orh Ni (Yam paste), which was really magnificent. The paste was the right thickness, and it wasn’t too sweet!
